Spark Notes: A Word from our New Director

By August 3, 2018March 10th, 2023JumpSpark

At JumpSpark our mission is “to connect Jewish teens through interest-based experiences inspired by a Jewish lens”, and we are doing this and so much more in Fall 2018.

Kelly Cohen
JumpSpark Director

As the new Director of this organization, I am proud of the wide range of new opportunities we are creating for Jewish teens, their families, and the educators in our community who serve teens. Whether you want to attend a one-time workshop, dig deeper with a series, or apply for our brand-new Strong Women Fellowship, we are striving to create experiences that meet you where you are regardless of passion, schedule, and geographic region.

I look forward to getting to know all of your in the year to come and to working together to create a rich Jewish teen landscape here in Atlanta.
